Most (and probably all) of the effects require an EX9 Renderer at their output. Is there a way to switch this EX9 layer to a Texture? The only way I figured out so far is to go through a renderer and then a DX9 Texture, but the quality loss is quite disturbing.
Is there any other way I could do that?
i don’t know of any other way, but: the quality loss is not necessary! if you inspect the EX9 Renderer node (Ctrl-I), you can see that the Backbuffer Width & Height are set to 0 by default - meaning that the backbuffer size is equal to the window size of the renderer. you can put any other values here to retain image quality.
